How Deadmau5 Got Calvin Harris’s Platinum Plaque in the Mail
Calvin Harris went 2X platinum in both the US and Canada with his 2012 single “Sweet Nothing,” and someone at his management company 360/Roc Nation finally sent him a “Certified Double Canadian Platinum” plaque.
The only problem is that it was sent, instead, to Deadmau5, who is also a client of the management company, and of course, Deadmau5 posted it on Instagram and Twitter.
No word yet as to how the mix-up occurred. Deadmau5’s birth name is Joel Zimmerman and he lives in rural Canada, while Calvin Harris was born Adam Richard Wiles, and he lives in Los Angeles. We’ll let the tweets explain the rest.
